Well, something is happening that I did not expect. After much in depth research, I understand it is possible.
Sidney has gone into burmation!!
Last year she decided to have her first sleep in Dec. This year is quite a bit earlier. After researching several Bearded Dragon sites and forums, I’ve learned that she actually was a bit late last year. Typical months are August, September, October and November.
My thoughts are, since we had an extremely hot July and beginning of August then abruptly went to very low temperatures, this may have triggered her sleep.
She is settled down behind her log, nice and cozy in her substrate. I can see her from the side of her tank. She’s moved several times but remains in the same area. God, I miss her. After reading all I could, I know she’s not sick. I did offer her water with drops from a syringe, she refused it. She looked up at me as if to say, I’m ok mom. With that look I knew it was time to let her sleep. I un plugged everything, lights and heat lamps.
So for the record, Sidney went into her 2nd burmation, Aug. 30, 2018
Needless to say, I will be a bit of a wreck till she wakes up. Anyone with dragons sleeping this early, I’d love to hear from you. Please join me in wishing Sidney a peaceful, uneventful sleep.😴 #beardeddragon #burmation #pet
